      Grinnage caught both targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to Houston.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Grinnage was pressed into starting duty with James O'Shaughnessy (inactive) and Austin Seferian-Jenkins (abdomen) and Niles Paul (knee) on injured reserve. Grinnage led the tight-end group by playing 31 of 68 offensive snaps, but overall the position didn't play a significant role in the offense given the injuries. The 24-year-old could see a similar workload this week against the Eagles if O'Shaugnessy is unable to return, but is unlikely to have the role of a true starting tight end.

      Westbrook caught all four targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Westbrook and the Jags offense barely showed up Sunday, with QB Blake Bortles getting benched early in the third quarter for his turnover issues. The yards are a season low as Westbrook's longest catch of the afternoon went for only six yards. The 24-year-old still has a solid 31 receptions for 404 yards and two touchdowns through the first seven weeks, but the inconsistency within the team's offense as a whole makes him difficult to trust on a week-to-week basis.

      Chark caught four of seven passes for 31 yards in Sunday's 20-7 loss to the Texans.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Jaguars offense struggled to put up points for the third consecutive week, but Chark played 44 percent of the offensive snaps, by far his best mark of the season. The seven targets tied with RB T.J. Yeldon for second on the team, but none of the wide receivers -- but Chark especially -- can be trusted consistently for fantasy purposes given the volatility of the quarterback situation, as Blake Bortles was benched in the third quarter Sunday for his continued poor play. Chark has seen some time on kick returns as well, but muffed an opportunity Sunday, giving Jacksonville starting field-goal position at the five-yard line.

      Roberts (concussion) returned to the practice field Monday, Jerry McDonald of The Oakland Tribune reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: There is still no word on whether Roberts passed concussion protocol testing, which would need to be done before the wideout returns to game action. However, with Amari Cooper now headed to Dallas, Roberts could find himself in an expanded offensive role when he returns.

      Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is nursing a knee injury ahead of Thursday's game against the Dolphins.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: At this juncture, it would be a bit of a surprise if Watt didn't suit up, but the injury remains something to keep an eye during the short week. Houston has been an impressive defensive unit over the last three weeks helping to slide them up to the No. 8 scoring defense (20.6 PPG) through eight weeks. During their four-game win streak, the Texans have allowed just 17.5 PPG and kept opponents below 18 points in three of the four contests. Week 8 figures to present a somewhat favorable matchup for the Texans who draw a Miami offense that been inconsistent throughout the early going. If the Texans can bring a consistent dose of pressure Thursday, Dolphins quarterback Brock Osweiler has proven the tendency of turning the ball over. If they're available, perhaps Houston is a good option for Week 8.

      Apple is questionable to return to Monday's game against Atlanta with an ankle injury.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The extent of Apple's ankle issue is unclear at the moment. Should he return to action, it would be a good sign for the third-year cornerback moving forward. If he can't give it a go, next week's practice report will serve as a good indicator of where he stands heading into Week 8. B.W. Webb could be the next guy up while Apple receives medical attention.

      Coutee (hamstring) was listed as limited on Monday's injury report, the Texans' official site reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Struck by a hamstring injury for the second time this season, Coutee told Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle that it isn't as serious as the one that kept him sidelined for the first three games. No matter, Coutee also doesn't expect to play with the Texans taking the field again Thursday versus the Dolphins, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Despite holding a mere walk-through Monday, the Texans could change their tune with Coutee if he maintains or increased his practice reps as the week goes on.

      Hopkins (foot) was limited at Monday's walk-through, the Texans' official site reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Hopkins has carried a foot injury with him at various points in the season, only to brush it off by gameday. Although his weekly target count has fallen to the single digits the past two games, he salvaged his day both times by reaching the end zone. Don't be surprised if Hopkins remains limited all week in advance of Thursday's game against the Dolphins.

      Erickson had just one catch that lost a yard on two targets in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Andy Dalton nearly exclusively targeted A.J. Green in the first half, and the team had a number of three-and-outs, thus limiting Erickson's opportunities. He also had 65 yards in kickoff returns.
